Diagnosed with intestinal obstruction, found tumor. Chest and abdominal ct scan shows tumor confined. Looking for treatment

hi! pls my mum was diagnosed with intestinal obstruction after the surgery which took place about 4weeks ago they found a tumour but did not remove it and therefore the doctors did a temporary colostomy for her. the histopathology showed it was was cancerous and other test including a chest and abdominal ct scan shows that the tumour is confined and has not spread to any other organs and its about 0.2cm in size. the doctors have talked about resection, reversal of the rectum to its normal position and chemotherapy . as a layman in this field i m confused. please in what order should these treatment take place and within what time frame? and please what is your candid opinion on this? please i need your help! thank you.
